Invitation to contemplate the greatness of God

One of the incredible comforts of God is who he is, his nature, his attributes, his character.

The angels sing “holy, holy, holy” – how fabulous that will be, to hear and see! But that’s then, this is now.

So, the wisest thing for me each morning is to dwell with my father and contemplate his greatness and his steadfastness. See, that steadfastness is rooted in God’s holiness.

And so, with David I cry:

“Deal with your servant according to your steadfast love, and teach me your statutes.

I am your servant; give me understanding, that I may know your testimonies!” (Psalms‬ ‭119:124-125‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

To contemplate and grow in my knowledge of God, what a joy!

Each morning, to begin each day reading his word, hearing his voice, speaking my heart and receiving forgiveness after confession, what a joy, what a privilege.

How can I forsake such an honor?

How can I ignore such an invitation?
